Why so much attention for the Czech Pavilion?
In the edition ofUniversal Exhibition of 2010, in Shanghai, the Czech Republic was awarded the silver medal for the more creative pavilion. The pavilion remained in China and was purchased by a Chinese-Czechoslovakian company for the value of 33 million crowns. The Czech pavilion which will be hosted in Milan will be designed to capture the attention of Italian investors and remain in our country even after the end of Expo.

The Czech government plans to invest in Milan Expo 2015 a capital of 470 million crowns, approximately 18 and a half million euros.
